Food scene
True to its roots, you’ll find a lot of great cheap eats along Main Street, as well as a few excellent high-end options. From Lebanese to Malaysian, South Indian to Peruvian, it’s on Main Street, and someone is doing it well. Some of the city’s best Chinese food is found here, especially high-end dim sum. A number of Vancouver’s renowned coffee roasters and cafes have outlets along and around Main Street, so be prepared for a case of the caffeine jitters. But for many people, what sets South Main apart from other neighbourhoods is the sheer number of craft breweries that have popped up over the past few years. If you start at East 2nd Avenue and walk up to East 8th Avenue, you’ll pass within two blocks of five different brewery tasting rooms.
A highlight of Vancouver’s rich Chinese history and culture, Sun Sui Wah is an award-winning Chinese restaurant. It specializes in Cantonese-style dishes on the base of the local seafood. What is especially worth tasting are: the Alaskan king crab, whole fried fish dishes, and the traditional dim sum. For desert, you should try the mango pancakes.

Check the online calendar; there's always something different on stage in this narrow, high-ceilinged venue.
